Romantic Private Estate Wedding

For those of you who grew up with Annie Banks as your wedding icon (read: me), this sweet New Hampshire affair is for you.  Because when it comes to at-home shindigs seriously dripping in romance, this gorgeous day totally takes the cake.  Think romance times one thousand meets fab paper goods from Gus and Ruby meets one magical moment after another captured by Mark Davidson.  See them here.

From Mark Davidson… Ryan and Joy were married in the backyard of Joy’s childhood home in New Hampshire. Joy’s day started early in the afternoon at her parent’s home, getting ready with a few close friends. She looked stunning as she walked down the aisle in her custom dress designed by Faniel Faucher. After the beautiful ceremony we headed back to Joy’s estate in Litchfield, NH for family formals. While the couple was enjoying their private portrait session, guests were relaxing in the barn while sipping on cold drinks and delicious appetizers prepared by The White Apron. Ryan and Joy were introduced to 300 friends and family under a spectacular Sperry tent ordained with an English Chestnut floor. Night Rhythm provided non stop entertainment making for a packed dance floor.

New Hampshire Winter Wedding at Alumni Hall

Winter weddings are the bees knees to me. They are filled with layers and layers of gorgeous texture on top of layers and layers of love, and really – how can you just not love that? This beauty from J. Harper Photography is the perfect example of why I’ll never tire of cold weather weddings, and you can see all the reasons why right here.

Dance Hall

From J. Harper PhotographyRustic-chic meets New England Glam! Kinsley is something of a design guru, and her skills were on display at this NYE wedding for sure! She designed her & Nathan’s custom invites, as well as her beautiful vows to her now-hubby. She was so wise with me (her photographer) in requesting specific shots (“frost on window panes, wreaths, sparklers!”), so I went into the wedding with an exact idea of what she was looking for. Genius! If you could only see this room prior to her decorating – it is plain, simple, maybe even a little boring – she absolutely transformed it with TONS of candles (ceremony was no-flash, all candle-lit), twinkle lights, gold & silver accents everywhere (check the bridesmaids gowns!), and hand-picked cloth coasters that her mother & her scavenged for at antique shops. She even did the ole’ Pinterest trick of freezing pine bows in large food cans to create outdoor candle holders for the aisle… I die. I’d hire this woman in a heartbeat to plan my next party!
